Bill Clinton: U.S. no longer dominated by Christians and Jews
One News Now ^ | June 14, 2009 | Christine Simmons

Posted on 06/14/2009 3:40:13 PM PDT by NYer

WASHINGTON - Former President Bill Clinton has told an Arab-American audience of 1,000 people that the U.S. is no longer just a black-white country, nor a country that is dominated by Christians and a powerful Jewish minority


In a speech to the group on Saturday, Clinton said that given the growing numbers of Muslims, Hindus and other religious groups here, Americans should be mindful of the nation's changing demographics, which led to the election of Barack Obama as president.

Clinton said by 2050 the U.S. will no longer have a majority of people with European heritage and that in an interdependent world "this is a very positive thing."

Speaking in a hotel ballroom to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee during its annual convention, Clinton also praised Obama's speech in Cairo, Egypt, that was focused on the Arab world.

Clinton told the audience that it's important that they push government leaders for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He cited an experience in 1993 when he failed to persuade many Jewish-American and Arab-American business people to invest in the Palestinian areas because violence and bombings had deterred them.

"It just took one more bus bomb or one more rocket or one more incident and then people got scared of losing their money," he said.

As the U.S. continues to push for peace in the area, "I think it's really important to give the Palestinian people something to look forward to," Clinton said to loud applause.

Clinton, who wasn't paid for his speech, spoke in a wide-ranging 35-minute address that focused on people's identity in an interdependent world. He said the U.S. can't rely on its military might in global relations. "It has to begin by people accepting the fact that they can be proud of who they are without despising who someone else is," he said.

Funny thing Clintoin, is that that that powerful Jewish minority helped to elect Obama.

Bubba may be full of himself, but he can read a demographic trend and he is right in his statement:
"Clinton said by 2050 the U.S. will no longer have a majority of people with European heritage..."

This sounds quite dubious, since those of Iberian heritage are, as I understand, due to make up an increasing proportion of the population.

Quoting the article — WASHINGTON - Former President Bill Clinton has told an Arab-American audience of 1,000 people that the U.S. is no longer just a black-white country, nor a country that is dominated by Christians and a powerful Jewish minority

Very true..., and it’s unfortunate that this has changed. But, it’s because significant numbers of people have kicked God out of the “marketplace” of ideas and culture and out of government and our laws...

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

And then quoting from above — In a speech to the group on Saturday, Clinton said that given the growing numbers of Muslims, Hindus and other religious groups here, Americans should be mindful of the nation’s changing demographics, which led to the election of Barack Obama as president.

It’s the Muslim demographic that is going to result in the *takeover* of the “West” by Islam. With the numbers that they are historically showing here — it’s *absolutely inevitable* that the U.S. is going to become *Muslim dominated* in a few short years — of a generation or so.

That’s not hyperbole but a *guarantee* that it’s going to happen...


Here is a video that shows the *guarantee* that Islam will be taking over the “West” (and the world) in a few short years — and without a doubt!

This is no joke! They’re going to be running things here in another generation. Take a look at this and you’ll see why.

Again, no hyperbole here, but a *certainty*...

Muslim Demographics...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-3X5hIFXYU

Then go over to this FReeper thread and get this latest video... (either download, or look at the abridged version or buy it...)...

“The Third Jihad” (video - abridged version of film)
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2271522/posts

As it stands right now..., the “West” is sunk and Islam is going to be ruling this country in short order. And this has absolutely nothing to do with Obama or the Democrats — rather it has to do with what is shown in that video...


I would say that the West and the U.S. is in their *death throes* right now...

Clinton bought and paid for by Saudi Arabia and China

Snippets from 2008 article: With gas at $4 a gallon, I don’t want anybody who is on the Saudi payroll near the Oval Office. It’s clear that foreign governments and the Clintons have been colluding to buy off the American process and open the store to foreign interests—like the Saudis and the Chinese Communist Party.

Hillary Clinton knows this. It is why she won't release her tax returns. Those returns will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that she and her husband are on the payroll of corrupt foreign entities--like the Chinese Communist Party and the Saudi Arabian government.

Clinton’s actually right. We’re now controlled by a bunch of faggots, closet-muslims, lesbians, communist sympathizers, and freeloading vermin. Not a genuine Christian or Jew in the bunch.

But Mr. Clinton, it’s not far off before this all changes.........

No reason to get excited. This is SOP for one of Bill’s PAID speeches. If he does one in Abu Dhabi, the purchaser can order standard anti-american fare with a side of pro-arab. It depends on who’s paying the bill as to what’s said. It really means nothing.

You weren’t expecting what he says to be objective, were you?

Those trends may appear correct today, but he’s forecasting out 40 years and no one knows what will happen over two generations. Those projections are based on what we know about the future, which is ... not much.

Maybe Euro-Americans will begin procreating beyond bare replacement levels again. Maybe some will migrate back to the Middle East or Asia, South or Central America. No one really knows how the world will be in 40 days much less years.

I remember some tv anchorette swooning back in ‘81 about how the then-19 year old Diana will one day be Queen of England. So much for that.

Demographic forecasting in the US has generally been accurate and the only errors have been an underestimation of population growth and more specifically the underestimation of the expansion of current minority groups.

Texas for example in now a “minority-majority” state meaning that blacks and Hispanics combined make up greater than 50% of the population. And while that fact has had little political impact this far, it is likely to have a great political impact in the next ten years when Texas becomes a Democratic state.

At that point in time, the Electoral College math gets very difficult for the GOP when going into a presidential election, they have to spot the Democrats; California, Texas, New York, Illinois and Florida before the first vote is cast.

That’s 168 Electoral College Votes for the Democrats before you begin to add in the other Blue States.

Yes, they conveniently forget that Spaniards - and Portuguese - are Europeans, and therefore, their descendants are of European heritage. Granted, some Latin American countries have large indigenous peoples populations or even mixed indigenous/African/European populations, but a lot of the people who emigrate to the US are of European descent.

Most of the "Hispanics" invading our country are really just the indiginous indians that populated south and central America before Europenas came. (Would that they were of European heritage, though. We wouldn't have some of the problems we're having now).
